And speaking of percolators, I have a suspicion that you can make
great coffee with them if you roast and grind the right beans. Just
like everything else in coffee. There are no rules or limitations.

Sorry, yes there are - there are rules about optimal time and temperature,
about how it is not a good idea to recirculate already brewed coffee back
over the grounds, about trying to keep the aromas in the cup and not
vaporizing them into the atmosphere, etc. The percolator breaks those rules
and therefore is incapable of making great coffee. It can make nostalgic
coffee, hot coffee, coffee that makes your kitchen smell real good, but not
great coffee.
